About the Course

Toothaches, Implants, & Sleep, Oh My! A Tale of a Cone Beam Driven General Dental Office

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) has ushered in a new era of 3-D imaging for clinicians. It enables dentists to SEE more, but how does it empower them to DO more? And what does this actually look like in a dynamic dental practice like yours?

In this course, Dr. Erin Elliott will share best practices about how to optimize CBCT for diagnostic and treatment planning of patients. From implant planning and placement to common incidental findings and sleep apnea, general dentists will leave this program with actionable takeaways.

Educational Objectives

  • Understand diagnostic capabilities of 3-D imaging

  • Identify common incidental findings

  • Grasp implant case planning and surgical guide planning

  • Recognize the CBCT's role in treating snoring and sleep apnea

  • Consider criteria for CBCT procurement
